Anyone who is even a passing fan of The Doors probably has, or at least has heard, some version of this concert. This particular incarnation, as legend has it, comes from a mixdown of the original multi-track masters of the complete Festival. The sound quality is mostly astonishing and it gives a pretty good idea of what The Doors sounded like at this momentous, and somewhat notorious Festival.

A little over an hour. And to refresh your memory if you’re familiar with it, here’s the set list:
